Hero 7 Black HDMI 4:3 Issue

I'm aware that the Hero 7 Black currently only outputs 1080p 59.94 via HDMI (Hoping for a firmware update to increase this as technically 4K output is possible)...

 

I've observed another HDMI issue when configuring video to 4:3

 

The HDMI output will show the 4:3 image... but instead of showing in native 4:3, the image is shrunk down to fit within the 1080p wide-screen bounds with black bars on either side.

 

What is the likelihood of getting this updated alongside native 4K Live/Monitor output?
